Excellent website on Taiwan's flora and fauna

According to this government website: gio.gov.tw/info/ecology/Engl … milk_e.htm

-the Taibodian Clouded Leopard is “common” in southern and eastern parts of the island. I thought they were extinct. This news to anyone?

Don’t know, but I wish “Taibodia” were extinct.

That’s not what the site says. It says they’re MORE common in the south than in the north.
That said, I don’t think there have been any verified sightings for many years, north OR south, but there are vast tracts of old growth forest down south and some very remote areas, plus they’re cats, so they’re extremely secretive, so its entirely possible that a few still exist. The aborigines claim they’re still around.
